ebooks - kindle

Good evening.
It's been rather along time since I typed in anything on the forum.
There have been some developements in tech land, namely the Kindle.
How many of you have one, and is there much out there for it regarding our particular interests?

Help please.

I went out last full Moon and took a picture. It's a bit poor but there was what looked like a star to the top right of the Moon. Does anyone know what is was/is? http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs120.snc4/36351_122147144495962_100001020314714_117207_8012357_n.jpg I just realised I had a...

The Moon

I went out to look at the Moon rising tonight about 10:40 Summer time. There was a bright spot close to it at about 1 0'clock, assuming the Moon as a clock!! Anyone know what it was? Here is a very bad photo of it: http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs120.snc4/36351_122147144495962_10000102...

Konus 500 for sale

I really have made up my mind this time.
We are downsizing and I really must sell my Konus 500.
You all know the value of this as new.
It is a bit the worse for wear and needs a good clean.
Buyer must collect.
Make me an offer.

Hey Dave, if you look at the list of my possessions you will see an addition, maybe I'll get some better Moon shots with this.
A new Fujifinepix.

Anyone near me?

I would like to know if there is anyone near enough to me (Wigan area) who could come and check out my Konus to see if it is set up right, I didn't get it new.

Regarding binos and specs, I just use one eye and one half of the binos but I also have a monocular.
My big problem is that one eye is longsighted and the other is shortsighted and my eyes work independently I can turn one or the other off when needed!!

Some Moon shots

It's a long time since I've been on, let alone post any pictures but this last few days I have dragged the Konus into the back garden spurred on by the very clear views of the Moon. Taken with a Fujifinepix A340 simply held to the eyepiece. http://pic70.picturetrail.com/VOL1799/8025183/15468528/3632...

Glad someone else noticed it.
I just came on and started a thread on that subject and the my PC crashed.
But yes, what a cock-up.
Bad science and bad acting.
